. if there was a gun law that would change the fact that a mentally disturbed man couldn't steal a gun, i would be for it, but the simple fact is, judy, i don't care what law you're going to put in place, the mentally disturbed man is going to steal a gun. >> you can't abolish-- >> he didn't have to steal it, he took it from his mother, what happened in columbine, took them from their parents and the n.r.a., i consider to be a completely utterly destructive organization in this society if they want everybody to have a gun they need to start talking to people how to handle a gun. here is an idea, secure your guns. my brother keeps his guns in a safe. and my father-- fr frnl. >> that's the law. >> are people prosecuted? >> that's a great point. >> and n.r.a. is on this stuff-- i want to nerve what i have to say. i'm tired of hearing how there's this anti-gun agenda. it's an anti-killing spree agenda, it's not an anti-gun agenda. i don't have a problem with guns, i grew up with guns. i have a problem with people having magazines clips, whatever you want to call them and everyone complains we don't

this shows a lack of judgment by the newspaper, and i think that we should not be stigmatizing every law-abiding gun owner out there and i think particularly after newtown, let's engage in a conversation about sensible policies that going owners, including probably many of these people whose names were printed in the paper and most americans agree on, like background checks for all gun sales and getting military style assault weapons off the streets and other sensible policies. >> the interesting thing about this, apparently these gun permits are for handguns only because you can't find out who owns let's say a semiautomatic assault rifle. those things aren't made public. why is that? >> well, that is a serious problem, the gun lobby has exerted its pressure to keep a lot of very important crime gun data secret, for example, there are restrictions which now prevent us from finding out which gun dealers supply most crimin criminals. gun lobbyists shut it down with friends in congress which protects corrupt gun dealers. most law-abiding gun dealers would like to expose the bad ones. >> so

. will you oppose as the national rifle association any attempt to time the gun laws, to do what even the international association of police chiefs says is a good idea, to ban these military-style assault weapons? will you oppose that? will you continue to oppose that? >> we will continue to oppose a ban on semiautomatic weapons that are used for perfectly legitimate purposes. these aren't military weapons. if we equipped our army with the ar-15 we'd be beaten by every third world-- you know, every third world dictatorship in the country. military weapons fully automatic weapons and that's illegal. you don't get those. that's not what we're talking about. the impression often is, bob, that is what we're talking about, but it isn't. we're talking about sporting arms-- you know the ar-15 is the highest selling-- >> schieffer: how many rounds can these weapons discharge, say, in five seconds? >> well, they fire when you put trigger. >> schieffer: sure and they keep firing. >> just as your shotgun-- not your shotgun bout most shotguns do. >> they don't keep firing. that's a fully automat

the national rifle association's opposition to any new gun laws, president obama insists an action is not an option when it comes to protecting children. while democrats and republicans are upset over the massacre in newtown, the country remains polarized on the issue of gun control. cnn's senior congressional correspondent dana bash is in washington. we know that some lawmakers came forward and expressed interest in introducing legislation about gun control, but i guess the question is will they really in the new year? >> reporter: it really -- the reaction, especially and even among republicans to the nra idea is sort of muted at best. it's not a lot of enthusiasm on capitol hill for the idea of the federal government stepping in and endorsing the idea of all schools having armed police officers. never mind funding it. listen to a couple of senators, starting with a republican. >> we had an armed guard in columbine. we had an assault ban. none of it worked. we're talking about preventing mass murder from nontraditional criminals. people who are not traditional criminals, who are
of more gun laws, the opposite of the nra, also offer this point. they remind everyone, there was an armed security officer at columbine high school the day of that 1999 massacre and that person could not stop that event. what they say is controlling gun violence now requires a package of solutions, mental health solutions for those who are mentally ill, gun laws and potentially more for schools a package of solutions beyond the schoolhouse door. miguel? >> a tough question in washington but what can only be described by a rant on friday by wayne lapierre what is your sense of it? the tone of it the fact he blamed anybody but didn't see any role for the nra to really play in this, how did that play, you think, in washington? >> reporter: well, the media machine that he referenced, i think you can well imagine, a good deal of the press corps found themselves perhaps scratching their head about that one. some people, of course, do support the nra and mr. lapierre. i think the real question, as you say, is one now of political muscle. will those who want to see more gun laws enacted have the
with something that is about essentially taxes. and the constitutions and the laws make it so that it's a requirement that originate in the house of representatives. one of the challenges beyond the political arguments and the handshakes dial deal making that we hope will happen over the next few days, there are the mechanics of getting it done and getting it done in time. now, i'm always surprised by procedure that there is a way to pull a rabbit out of a hat when they have an agreement. but there are steps that need to be taken. will they allow for debate? the big power shift is that we have been so focused on the house on what speaker boehner could or could not do. when he was unable to get enough votes for his idea to have the income tax threshold be at a million dollar, when that didn't work, he insisted that the senate begin to act. politically, that's important because they want to see how many democrats are on board. will all of them join in? and how many senate republicans, especially the more conservative members, members who were up for reelection in 2014. how many of them

they want to bill, the infrastructure, the programs they make into law. guest: i think james hits on the virtue of a flat tax, having a low, single rate, getting rid of all the loopholes in the tax code and having the government learn to live within its means. that would take some time, but it is eminently doable with positive reforms on the entitlement for younger people. you do not have to change the benefit formulas for those on medicare or social security or who are about to go on those systems. as younger people know, those systems are headed for a crash. the sooner we reform them in a positive way, the better. the key to do it is not by raising taxes, but by having a low single rate and they learn to live within it. i think you'll have a much more prosperous country for it. host: let's end where we started. what do you think the best solution in your personal view and your business view is to the fiscal cliff situation? guest: aside from not doing something foolish and the next three or four days -- that is why i do not mind kicking the can down the road -- would be to follo
